|The Facebook of the News
In yet another step toward global control, Facebook is taking over the news. Instead of journalists or news editors deciding which articles are featured and read, Facebook will use a very powerful algorithm, which will tailor its newsfeed to the interests of each user. This way, individual people on their Facebook page will only see news articles that they care about or are interested in.
It is estimated that 30 percent of Americans already get their news from Facebook, a percentage which is likely to grow, considering that many young users are turning away from print news. In addition, Facebook has all the data on what news articles a user is reading and what the user’s friends are reading as well.
